Our brief was to create an audiovisual entertainment experience within the formal family lounge, whilst maintaining the existing décor and interior design elements within a specified budget. For this we specified a Dolby 5.2 audio configuration with a hidden 4K upscaling projector, motorised screen and discreetly positioned speakers.
The most important feature to the client’s family was the central ingelnook fireplace and keeping the wall art on display. Taking this into consideration, we explored methods of installing a discrete system, pointing out technical compromises from the audio point of view but sticking to the original brief pretty strictly. The most challenging aspect was in fact trying to install speakers into the existing wooden beam above the fireplace. But we did it!
The projector was located in the adjoining study with an aperture created between both rooms. The wall art was hung on custom motorised rails. The audiovisual rack was also installed the the study. A Control4 EA3 processor and Neeo remote were use for smart control – at the touch of a button, the wall art would move away, revealing the projector lens and producing a crisp and vibrant image on the motorised screen.
Our clients were suitably delighted with results and appointed our services again in their new house. (See Lounge Bar Media Room)
